Sadly Smokie was found alone with Tiny however he was left alone in a crate filled with Urine!!! His owner passed away and a family member called BP&SBR to help the poor guy!

Poor Smokie had a few minor issues however he also had a really bad Urinary tract infection and his owner found it easier to keep him crated so he would NOT pee all over the home. He has been living in his own urine for a very very long time!!! He is now all cleaned up and on medication to take care of the UTI and the pain he has been in! He is now healthy and a very sweet loving pug!! Smokie has a elongated soft palate, It causes issues with his breathing however he is older and surgery is not recommended! Smokie needs a calm cool environment and his breathing is soft and quite!! You would almost not know he has the soft palate!! He may be given something called Ace as calming medication, or steroids for inflammation which would only need to be used on an as needed basis. As long as he is stress free and does not get overly excited he is fine and would not need any medication!

Smokie will be placed with older children or no children so that he can stay calm and not get overly excited or stressed! HE is a very sweet little pug.
